    Dual mechanisms of opioid-induced respiratory depression in the inspiratory rhythm-generating network

    Nathan A Baertsch et al.
    Opioids cause hyperpolarization and pre-synaptic suppression among a subset of preBötzinger Complex neurons to impair respiratory rhythmogenesis.

    Conformation of the nuclear pore in living cells is modulated by transport state

    Joan Pulupa et al.
    Polarized fluorescence microscopy of individual nuclear pores in vivo reveals conformational changes in select domains of proteins of the inner ring.

    Polo-like kinase acts as a molecular timer that safeguards the asymmetric fate of spindle microtubule-organizing centers

    Laura Matellán et al.
    Molecular and cell biology analyses reveal novel roles of Polo-like kinases in establishing non-random segregation patterns of spindle-associated microtubule-organizing centers during mitosis, a phenomenon linked with replicative cell aging.

    Deep-learning-based three-dimensional label-free tracking and analysis of immunological synapses of CAR-T cells

    Moosung Lee et al.
    Rapid, label-free, volumetric, and automated assessment of the immunological synapse dynamics is demonstrated by combining optical diffraction tomography and deep-learning-based segmentation, providing a new option for immunological research.

    Kinesin-4 KIF21B limits microtubule growth to allow rapid centrosome polarization in T cells

    Peter Jan Hooikaas et al.
    Kinesin-4 KIF21B promotes rapid reorientation of the microtubule network during formation of immunological synapse in T cells by acting as a pausing and catastrophe-inducing factor that keeps microtubules short.

    Stepwise polarisation of developing bilayered epidermis is mediated by aPKC and E-cadherin in zebrafish

    Prateek Arora et al.
    Polarity cascade initiated by aPKC in the periderm is transduced by adherens junction component E-cadherin to the basal epidermis during the development of zebrafish bilayered epidermis.

    Reconstruction of Par-dependent polarity in apolar cells reveals a dynamic process of cortical polarization

    Kalyn Kono et al.
    Par-complex-dependent cell polarity can be cell-autonomously conferred to non-polar Drosophila S2 cells, unveiling temporal patterns toward the cortical localization of Par-complex aggregates that include a meshwork containing unit segments.
